Extra Butter presents the Neo-Tokyo Collection, a capsule inspired by Katsuhiro Otomo’s cyberpunk anime masterpiece, AKIRA. Set in 2019 in a post-apocalyptic Japan, the supernatural action plot line was a vessel to address the underlying theme of corrupt politicians, secret military motives, and tension from activists that lead to inevitable violence - many themes that ring very true and weigh heavy in today’s real life 2019 climate.
The aesthetic of the Neo-Tokyo collection is directly inspired by the film's stark contrast between vivid pops of neon signs and illuminating motorcycles against the dark and ominous cityscape setting. The pieces feature simple lines of classic silhouettes with tweaked details that subtly imply both the Japanese and retro-future inspiration.
